2015 Chicago Auto Show: Nissan 370 NISMO Roadster Concept previews an open-air dream

Article by Christian A., on February 13, 2015

Nissan’s big surprise for the 2015 Chicago Auto Show was the 370 NISMO Roadster Concept, a vehicle that previews an open-top version of the 370 NISMO Coupe. Compared to the coupe, the 370 Nismo Roadster Concept shows the same design with a deep front fascia which includes Hyper LED Daytime Running Lights, Black headlight bezels, a NISMO emblem as well as the NISMO red stripe accents.

From the side, we can see the NISMO red accents, the red sideview mirror covers and the top-down profile. The fixed headrest bars are located in the middle of the vehicle and are wrapped in leather with red accents.

The rear end features a custom carbon-fiber rear spoiler, while the power-folding roof with fabric inner liner design completed the design. Moreover, the concept uses 19-inch NISMO forged aluminum-alloy wheels by RAYS, wrapped in Y-rated Bridgeston Potenza S001.

The interior feature black Recaro seats wrapped in leather, with leather stitching and stain-repellent, a 3-spoke steeting wheel wrapped in Alcantara and aluminum pedals. Under the hood, there is a 3.7-liter DOHC V6 engine producing 350 hp and 276 lb-ft of torque.

Nissan 370 NISMO Roadster Concept

The Nissan 370Z NISMO Roadster Concept is designed to provide the best of two worlds - the open-air driving exhilaration of a standard 370Z Roadster and the racing-inspired style and performance of a 370Z NISMO Coupe. It offers unique engine, suspension, exterior and interior features versus standard Nissan 370Z Roadster models - including a 350-horsepower 3.7-liter V6 and NISMO-tuned suspension.

"While the 370Z NISMO Roadster Concept is just a performance study at this point, you can see its potential as a production model," said Fred Diaz, senior vice president, Nissan Sales & Marketing and Operations U.S., Nissan North America. "First, we've injected all the performance equipment from a 370Z NISMO Coupe. Inside, since the interior is on display whenever the top is down, it features the full NISMO treatment, as well as a few special custom touches. The Nissan 370Z NISMO Roadster Concept's striking visual presence starts with the addition of GT-R-inspired functional and fully integrated aerodynamic body pieces, including a custom carbon-fiber rear spoiler created exclusively for use on the 370Z NISMO Roadster Concept. Inside, the NISMO-styled interior is just as stunning, anchored by black Recaro® seats with custom off-white Ultrasuede® inserts."
